Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 2, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE IETHBRIDGE HERAID Saturday, Oclober 3, 1971 District hospital boards proposal is scuttled EDMONTON :l'i'i Health I Minister Noil Crawford has halted plans which would have given Edmonton and Calgary district hospital boards. The plans were laid by the (ormer Social Credit govern- ment. I Mr. Crawford, while a mem- i her oi Edmonton city sympathized with municipal councils which opposed the plan on the grounds that they were being coerced into ac- cepting the boards. However, he said in an inter- view, that he hasn't made a decision yet. "In principle, it sounds de- sirable. But I want to see the over-all concept before com- mitting the government to ex- penditures." Mr. Crawford also said he will make a decision in a few weeks on whether the govern- inent will follow through with a Social Credit plan to transfer adult correctional services to the social development depart- ment from the attorney-gcner- nJ's department. j Also, pro-abortion groups I have been pressuring the gov- ernment for more facilities, hut Mr. Crawford said it is his per- sonal view that there are other more important areas that should be given attention first. Oddities in the News Government's 'grass plot' something to brag about By DAVE THOMAS OTTAWA (CP) The gov- ernment brand of marijuana is three times as strong as the product being marketed on the street, a spokesman re- ported Friday. Dr. A. B. Morrison, assist- ant deputy minister of the health department, said: "We are delighted with the quality of the material we're produced." He spoke to reporters in the federal ''pot at the peak of harvesting activity at the experimental farm. Three hundred varieties of marijuana were seeded last spring for experimental uses. The cannabis cultivation is a joint responsibility of the health department's food and drug directorate and the agri- culture department. Dr. Morrison denied that one purpose is to determine whether marijuana can be commercially grown in Can- ada. He said the only motive is to produce a strain of con- sistently powerful marijuana for use in biomedical research on its effects. About eight pounds of seed were used to sow the two-acre ASPHALT PAVING TOLLESTRUP Construction Co. Ltd. SAND and GRAVEL PHONE 328-2702 field. The seeds were obtained from a United Nations agency- dealing with the illicit drug trade and from smuggled shipments intercepted by po- lice. MEXICO IS BEST Dr. Morrison said the high- est quality _ with the strongest concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol was produced from, seeds originat- ing in Mexico. About a quarter of the crop was made up of the Mexican variety. The reporters were given a short lecture on the cutting of the of them 10 feet high with stalks two inches shown how the leaves are separated from the less-potent stalks and completely inactive seeds. A worker strips the dried leaves bv hand and then grinds Uiem through a screen. The resulting fine powder is then packaged in ordinary brown paper bags and canned for distribution to research laboratories. The marijuana is ready for use immediately after drying and does not increase in strength with aging. The shelf life was considerable. "It's very stable as long as it's kept Dr. Morrison said. Dr. Morrison recalled that the grass patch was invaded several times over the sum- mer by young smokers. Most of the break-ins were moti- vated by a desire to sneak past the 'w a t c h t o w e r and guard dogs, not by a desper- ate need for the drug, he sug- gested. "Stolen fruit always tastes better." Pipeline planned CALGAHY 'CP1 n 36-mCii pipeline to carry a mixture of petroleum hydrocarbons from Alberta to Samia, Ont., and Green Springs, Ohio, is planned by Dome Petroleum Ltd. The company announced it has applied to the National En- ergy Board for permission to construct the line and also to export a mixture of ethane, bu- tane, propane and condensate. The mixture would be used as refinery feedstock in Sarnia and as the raw material for a synthetic natural gas plant to lie built by Columbia in Green Springs. The line will be constructed partially in the United States and presidential permission is needed to do this, a company spokesman said. Columbia also needs author- ization from the U.S. Federal Power Commission. A Dome official said other companies are involved in plans for the line but no firm com- mitments have been made with the project considered tentative pending regulatory approval. The line, stretching miles, does not have a definite route or starting date, the com- pany said, but it would origin- ate "from Empress in southeast- ern Alberta.

WASHINGTON (AP) Be- cause of significant progress in the fight against smallpox, the surgeon general of the U.S. i Public Health Services has rec- ommended that all states halt i the requirement of routine smallpox vaccinations for chil- dren. Dr. Jesse L. Steinfield an- nounced acceptance of recom- mendations on immunization practices, which said the shots should be given only to hospi- tal personnel and persons trav- I eling to countries where small- 1 pox has not been eradicated.

GlItL COMPLAIN LEEDS, England (AP) It's knees nr squeeze on the city's new "friendship" buses and the girls are complaining. This transport crisis came when the city placed public bus scats face to face in bid to encourage passengers to talk to each other. It turned out the big talking point was the knee-nibbing 19 inches the city allowed be- tween seats. Dorothy Dyson, a five-foot- two, eyts-of-blue pharmacist, said: "One man, in his 30s, turned away rather than rub knees with me. I don't know who was more embarrassed." A Leeds housewife had an- other version: "The chap fac- ing me didn't mind nibbing knees with me. Matter of fact, he farcied it too much." At Leeds city hall a spokes- man explained: "Our aim is to encourage friendship be- tween passengers, f do not agree that there is not enough room."

Shipping freight rates be- Australia and the United States recently rose 25 per cent. T h e China-watchers kid themselves that the orientals are not human beings like we are. They are wrong.
